Debian Security Advisory DSA-1481-1                  security@xxxxxxxxxx

Package        : python-cherrypy
Vulnerability  : missing input sanitising
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE Id(s)      : CVE-2008-0252

It was discovered that a directory traversal vulnerability in CherryPy,
a pythonic, object-oriented web development framework may lead to denial 
of service by deleting files through malicious session IDs in cookies.

For the stable distribution (etch), this problem has been fixed in
version 2.2.1-3etch1.

The old stable distribution (sarge) doesn't contain python-cherrypy.

We recommend that you upgrade your python-cherrypy packages.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
